Gas and Gunk in carb

If you have a dirtbike/atv you might have experienced this problem before. You gas it and it shuts off, most likely this is caused by having particles or old gas "slime" in the carb. All you have to do i take off the bottom bowl and then clean it out and you should be set to go.

coolant status light led setting fro dirtbike

I'm guessing because it has an ATV setting programmed in. No cooling fans on the dirtbike means they run a little hotter so I need to know a good baseline to set it to. If your light is on all of the time and not blinking then you have version 3M hex in your ecu. This was a version that we did for C'Dale back in early 02 to help them with a problem. You will need to change to the 4K hex to get the functionality of the temp light.,,
